Mavin AU in which Gavin is mute and uses ASL to communicate.
Gavin generally used to dislike being around other people. They always treated him differently. He didn’t want to be coddled. He didn’t want “special treatment.” He just wanted them to see him as a person. Which is why he fell in love with his job at Roosterteeth. Not only could he do the things he loved, but his coworkers didn’t baby him. It was there that he became best friends with Michael.
Michael wasn’t scared to fuck around with Gavin, and Gavin loved to hang out with him. Michael didn’t always understand what he was trying to say, but Gavin didn’t care. He understood how he felt, and that was good enough for him.
Wow I’ve wanted to do this for a while, but it turned out really dumb, I’m sorry please don’t hate me.
